There is no question for me: sadness is definitely correlated with creative
thinking.  When I am happy, I don't think, I just have fun.  It isn't clear
if sadness actually causes creativity, or if creativity somehow causes
sadness, but if the latter it seems like it should be the other way around.
Discovering something certainly causes satisfaction, and discovery usually
requires creativity.
